Go Home Cheeky Animals by Bell and Beasley

A funny and much-loved CBCA-winning picture book set in an outback community

At Canteen Creek where we live, there are cheeky dogs everywhere. But when the cheeky goats, donkeys, buffaloes and camels make mischief in the camp, the dogs just lie there – until those pesky animals really go too far. Then the cheeky camp dogs roar into action!

‘A funny, uplifting and beautifully written tale about family, home and place.’ Ros Moriarty, author of Listening to Country.
